    I have been working at Morgan Stanley for more than a year

    Pros

    After 1.5 years of working here, I can think of only 1 good point. 1: They will keep you busy. Basically if you are not looking for quality work then this is a place for you. 2. Work-life balance is good. If you are not looking to learn more, this is a place for you.

    Cons

    1. Everything is on legacy technologies. 2. Almost none of the projects are derived from India. So there will always be a difference in quality of work. 3. Very process oriented company, you need weeks to get approval for the deployment of even a single line of code. 4. Pretty much every other MNC where they follow boss culture. You need to butter up your manager continuously. 5. And they fire a lot of people every year. Very risky.
